Miloš Forman United States, 1971

josé neves's rating of the film Taking Off

35mm. In 71, Forman looked to North-American society, contextualized in a peculiar space - that of New York, a social laboratory of immense changes - as he looked at the Czech society in times of family and cultural dismemberment. Adopting a very similar structure and playing with a sharp parallel editing, he was responsible for a key piece of the cinema that came from that city in that decade. Superiorly fun.
